Welcome to the delicious atmosphere of Christmas! As the festive season approaches, La Via Natura campsites invite you to embark on a baking experience that’s both simple and full of conviviality. Christmas is a magical time when young and old get together to create gourmet memories as a family!

It’s an invitation to share special moments with family, to knead the dough together, cut out playful shapes, and let your children’s creativity run wild. These little cookies become more than just a treat for the taste buds: they become an adventure, a collective work where everyone adds their personal touch.

  • 200g of flour
  • 100g of brown sugar
  • 125g of butter (or coconut oil)
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt

Some options for flavoring your cookies:

  • Orange zest
  • Cinnamon powder
  • Grated tonka bean

And for decoration:

  • Icing sugar
  • Fair trade chocolate chips
  • Crushed nuts

Preparation of your Christmas cookies:

  1. Mix the dry ingredients: In a large bowl, combine the flour, brown sugar, and salt. Add your choice of flavors (orange zest, cinnamon, tonka bean) for a fragrant touch.
  2. Incorporate the butter: Cut the butter into small pieces and add it to the dry mixture. Knead with your hands until you achieve a sandy texture.
  3. Add the vanilla extract: Add the vanilla extract to the mixture and knead until you have a homogeneous dough.
  4. Form a ball and refrigerate: Form a ball with the dough, wrap it in reusable food wrap, and let it rest in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.
  5. Preheat the oven: In the meantime, preheat the campsite oven to 180°C (356°F) 🙂
  6. Roll out and cut: On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to about 5mm thick. Use cookie cutters to create fun shapes with the kids.
  7. Decorate to your liking: Arrange the cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Before baking, add decorations with icing sugar, chocolate chips, or crushed nuts.
  8. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the edges of the cookies are lightly golden.
  9. Let cool and enjoy: Allow the cookies to cool on a rack before indulging. You can store them in a metal container to keep them fresh for longer.
